In a recent interview Jason talks about Justice League and reveals where the idea for Aquaman’s tattoos came from.

Aquaman has already won over fans in the Justice League trailers, in part because of his striking tattoos and long hair, something that stood out from the comic book design.

That idea originated from the mind of Justice League director Zack Snyder, though Aquaman actor Jason Momoa did get some say in how his character looked on screen (via DC All Access).

“Zack [director Zack Snyder] had the idea to put the tattoos everywhere and everyone wanted him to have a little bit of blonde in the hair,” Momoa said. “I just wanted him to have the Van Gogh green-colored eyes, where you can kind of get lost in them. You’re scared by it, but you’re drawn in. We put the contacts in, and I was like, wow. It’s kind of scary, but hopefully not too scary.”

While Snyder came up with the idea, costume designer Michael Wilkinson is responsible for bringing that vision to life. He’s also the one who built the actual Aquaman costume, which Momoa has nothing but positive things to say about.

“Out costume designer, Michael Wilkinson, is just unbelievable,” Momoa said. “As far as the armor, it’s just gold and green and about 40 pounds of rubber. I don’t know what it’s made out of, really, but it’s heavy; it looks good; you put it on and just sink right into the character.”

The character of Aquaman is one torn between two worlds, neither of which fully accept him. This was not too hard to grasp for Momoa, whose own background contained some of that as well.

“There’s a lot I could identify with because I was born in Hawaii and then raised in Iowa, which made me feel like an outcast. Aquaman’s half and half. He was not accepted in Atlantis, but also doesn’t fit in with the surface world So, he lives in those tides. He’s very defiant and a loner until he meets the team and it becomes this little family,” Momoa said.

In this recent interview Jason Momoa opens up about his diet and his training; plus how this affects his health and life in general. Check it out:

The Jason Momoa workout is mother nature inspired

Though he may look as if struts an iron-forged physique, Momoa’s routine is surprisingly fun and varied.

“I like to workout in the morning, at the crack of dawn, and love to workout outside: whether that’s climbing, hill sprints, boxing, surfing, swimming, skateboarding – it gives me some time to think and focus,” he explains. “It helps me start my day off positively.”

Smart move because a new study in PLOS One found even gentle exercise improved people’s mood and anxiety levels, but the effects were greatest when the exercise took place outdoors rather than in a gym. Even if you’re grinding away in the gym, try to avoid doing your cardio on the treadmill and rather run to a nearby field to do it as nature intended like Momoa does.

Jason Momoa on the importance of cardio

Success in health involves prioritizing the right kind of muscles, the most significant of which you’ll never see. “The most important muscle in your body is your heart, so I like to work up a sweat in the morning,” explains Momoa.

“If you take care of your heart it will take care of you. Whether that’s running, hiking, swimming, surfing, yoga or whatever, just 45 minutes a day getting your sweat on – it makes such a difference physically and mentally.”

While you are a little stronger in the late afternoon because your body has had time to wake up, morning exercise also has it benefits because you’re likely to burn a greater percentage of fat for energy, found a study in the Journal of Physiology.

Just don’t let that sway you into believing that if you can’t do the morning then you shouldn’t exercise at all, because the best time to exercise is whenever the hell you have the time to do it.

Naturally gifted with genetics + work ethic = Jason Momoa

Some guys do hit the genetic lottery but that doesn’t mean you can’t improve on what nature dished out. “Before playing Conan, I hadn’t actually ever used weights. I had to pack on about 25 pounds of muscle for that role in a short amount of time, so I had to hit the weights,” he explains.

“Before Conan, fitness wise everything came from your general sports and outdoor pursuits. I’ve always loved the outdoors and even when I have to be bigger, I want to be strong yet agile. So, it’s a mix of weights and functional workouts and I incorporate the things I love doing outdoors.”

If you’re struggling to find the enjoyment in exercise when you’re wearing a blood red face and an uncomfortably sweaty crotch, invite a friend, though you may want to keep feelings about the latter to yourself.

People enjoy exercise far more if they’re with other like-minded folk, found research at the University of Aberdeen. And the more enjoyable exercise is, the less food you’ll scoff afterwards, so make the changes you need by roping in the right crew.

In a recent interview to The Wrap James Wan reveals that Momoa stripped the stigmas within his character and explain more details about Aquaman. Check out the full interview bellow:

James Wan, director of upcoming “Aquaman,” is aware that the DC character is considered a bit of a joke by comic book readers.

Since the ’70s, Aquaman’s been the butt of endless barbs, largely thanks to Hanna-Barbera’s TV cartoon “Super Friends,” which depicted him as a wholesome superhero who rides seahorses and talks to fish.

Wan credits Zack Snyder for doing away with the stigma by casting the brooding Jason Momoa to breathe fresh life into Aquaman, calling the decision “a stroke of genius.”

“Momoa is not a guy that you would go up to and make fun of,” Wan told TheWrap. “I really think you immediately remove any of the stigma of the character from the cartoons that we are familiar with.”

Momoa was cast by Snyder as Aquaman back in 2013. He first appeared in Snyder’s 2016 superhero mashup “Batman v Superman.” Before the character’s standalone project, slated for release in 2018, he’ll next appear in this fall’s “Justice League,” alongside Gal Gadot, Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Ezra Miller and Ray Fischer.

DC President Geoff Johns revitalized Aquaman in 2011 when he took over as writer of The New 52, a relaunch by DC Comics of its monthly comics.

Johns presented Aquaman as a hero fighting for respect among the community he serves and protects. What resulted was a fresh, occasionally humorous reintroduction in part because Johns used the perceived silliness of Aquaman as part of the character’s foundation.

“Having said that, I’m not completely unaware of the stigma,” Wan added. “If anything, I embrace it and being able to laugh at yourself and have fun at yourself is important and that’s something I am aware of as I make ‘Aquaman’ right now.”
